No26 now offers 183 studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments supported by relaxed, urban and creative communal areas; including lounges, co-working spaces and a courtyard events space.
The scheme forms part of part of an extensive renaissance of the East Croydon area and included the addition of six new storeys and brick facade treatments together with a total internal refurbishment.
The Vawdrey House was involved in the interiors from early on in the build process, influencing the layouts and injecting personality and design flair to launch the building ahead of the local competition.
The apartments have all been individually considered to offer a cool, contemporary, but above all homely feel.
We designed everything from kitchens, bathrooms and floor finishes to decoration, lighting and furniture.
This is not a bland speculative development.
Native were looking for somewhere people could 'kick their shoes off and call home' from the main entrance of the building onwards.
The striking kitchens have been carefully designed and bespoke made to a high spec.
Corian worktops are set against a mix of black, oak and white finishes, all with plywood edge effects to the sleek handleless doors.
In the bedrooms the bedside wall lights vary by room, further adding to the individual style.
Illuminated built-in wardrobes, lift-up ottoman storage beds and quirky bedside lockers offer practical storage with style.
Black out blinds and sumptuous kingsize beds offer a good night's sleep, with stunning views over London to wake up to.
There are multiple colour schemes for the apartments. Further 'mix and match' variations within the furniture means there is very little repetition through the building.
Clever touches - such as metal grids on walls to hang pans, picture shelves for artwork, and bespoke hallway units to hang coats - all turn these spaces from rental apartments - into homes.
Coming soon... floor plans and images of the communal areas!
